lyrics

people talking and it doesn't mean a damn thing
walk in circles follow signs and buy your wedding rings
closed to everything around them, talking so much shit
meet me back here round 11, we'll see who's fit

and you stand in the ashes wondering how you let it burn so long
pointing fingers daring somebody to prove you wrong
oh what a struggle it is to get up every day
when all you gotta do is work on making things ok

your point of view is weary
lay it down and walk on through the door
and if you feel the need to breathe
don't suffocate cuz that's what air is for

so lay it out and there i go
looking foolish cuz i don't believe in saying no
yeah i make work
take it down and welcome back
here's a choice to make don't have yourself a heart attack
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah-yeah
yeah i make work

people try to find reasons not to be alive
counting their fingers like they don't know that there's five
murder mother murder father cuz they have a plan
jiminy cricket and they have the nerve to give a damn

everybody wants a piece of something they don't have
but what you want wants you right back so don't be too sad
who lays down at night and wishes it would stay the same
who fears change enough to risk they'll never win the game

i know you want to run all night
cuz tired's not a word that means much anymore
it's killing you it's killing this so
cut it out, cut it out, cut it out and cut yourself a piece of mind
oh why

so lay it out and there i went
looking crazy cuz i think that life is heaven sent
yeah i make work
take it down and my oh my
there's a lack of understanding and a lot of asking why
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah-yeah
yeah i make work

responsibility is killing me and you're content to shut it down cuz it's not clear
who made you cruel, who said it's cool to
disconnect and redirect the fear
oh dear

somewhere down the line you figure things have gotta change
but people walk away from truth because it sounds strange
all they hear is la-dee-da-dee-da-dee da da
deedly deedly dee bow-chicka-bow-wow

so lay it out and there i go
but it'll be ok cuz i know everybody grows
yeah i make work
take it down and take a guess
at the secret recipe for happiness
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah-yeah
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah-yeah

lay it out and there i go
looking foolish cuz i don't believe in saying no
yeah i make work
take it down and take a guess
at the secret recipe for happiness

life is work
so make it work
